Know your foe: Oklahoma State football 2016-’17 season schedule

Written By: Jordan Branstetter

College football is almost back! In one week from now, it’ll be time for tailgating, ingesting an unhealthy amount of food and beverages, and cheering on your university when they take the field.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys head into the 2016 season having to replace eleven starters — five on offense — six on defense. The running game for the Cowboys was underwhelming while the offensive line struggled mightily last season. But, with the addition of Stanford transfer running back Barry J. Sanders, and a more experienced offensive line — there are reasons for optimism in Stillwater next season.

With that being said, let’s take a look at the upcoming season schedule for the Oklahoma State Cowboys and players on opposing teams that you should keep an eye on:
